Giving Thanks 2020. Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

The holiday season is upon us, as irregular as it may be.  Large gatherings have been swapped for intimate dinners with a handful of family and friends; traditional seasonal “posadas” (holiday parties) are traded out for Secret Santa exchanges and spirited toasts over Zoom. Still, there’s ways to help out around the community for this […]

November Sunshine! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

In the comings and goings of Rocky Point, along with the on-again off-again nature we’ve become (somewhat) accustomed to during Covid, we were sad to hear Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers cancelled this weekend’s upcoming shows in town.  Organizers remarked, “Despite hardships for many, the band feels public safety is a priority for our audience […]

Celebrate Life – Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

This time of year is when U.S. traditions of Halloween melt into Mexico’s commemoration of Day of the Dead. Normally, festivities and memories spill across Puerto Peñasco’s streets, bars, and cemeteries in a colorful display of masks, altars, and catrinas.  While many of these traditions still hold true in this atypical year of Covid-19, festivities […]

Rocky Point Fall Weekend Rundown

It finally felt like Fall in Rocky Point this morning (almost…wait, did it?). Foggy streets greeted early risers as people threw open windows and front doors, wondering if this means we’ve really turned the corner on lingering summer humidity. In a glance at the news, we see the “only essential travel” limit at the US/Mexico/Canada […]

Love the Arts! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Phoenix area has already surpassed a record number of over 100° days! While we may still have some humidity lingering this late into October, Puerto Peñasco is at least 10° – 15° degrees cooler and we’ve got the sea breeze!  Live music continues to ring out under #CoastalDistancing standards in town, and yes, we are […]

Rocky Point Rundown Return!

Greetings once again from the shores of Puerto Peñasco! It has been a minute, indeed. Believe it or not, the last time we pulled out the calendar to run down the weekend together was mid-March! Well, we’ve all been through some stuff together – and mostly apart – over the past few months, haven’t we? […]

The Friday SeaShell Museum reopens to visitors!

Contributor:  Naomi Black Did you know that Rocky Point has a Seashell Museum? This small museum, built in 2017 and opened to the public in January of 2018, houses a private collection of seashells, mostly from the Sea of Cortez. Other shells in the collection are from the Pacific Ocean, while a handful are from […]

#supportlocalbusiness Rocky Point Rundown

Well, we sure didn’t think Spring would roll into Puerto Peñasco like this. As we followed word of the coronavirus (COVID-19) that has been spreading across the globe since early this year, and knew first cases of it were detected in Mexico on just February 28th, our focus turned more towards revisiting how to wash […]

Whenever it rains… Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

The skies opened up over Puerto Peñasco yesterday, seemingly also in mourning after the city was struck by news from the weekend of a tragic bus accident involving young boxers and their trainers. As a community, we come together and continue to celebrate life. A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise funds to […]

Welcome, March! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

March! Yes, synonymous with Spring and of course Spring Break… (note:  Santa (Holy Week) comes in April this year so there’s still time to plan) Speaking of planning, get ready for June as tickets to the 2020 RCPM Circus Mexicus will go on sale this Saturday March 7th @ ! Here in Puerto Peñasco, […]

Leap year. Indeed, there’s a whole extra day to enjoy this weekend so why not take in the festivities of the Viva Peñasco Carnaval – parades – rides – shows!  Around the malecon you can also catch a glimpse of classic cars over the weekend at the Desert Dreams annual Car Show.  As the weather […]

Fins up! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Still having a whale of time in Puerto Peñasco!  The whales (mostly fin and humpback) are still skirting near our shores, much to the delight of local tour companies, residents, and visitors alike. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to catch some tail during the 2020 whale-watching season, which officially is through April 1st though […]

Whatcha got? AMOR! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

¡AMOR! With Valentine’s Day on a Friday, coupled with the US Presidents Day 3-day weekend, what’s there not to love?  Following the tremendous dousing Puerto Peñasco received this week, the sporadic lakes around town are hopefully drying out as things are heating up.  There’s plenty going on around town this weekend, so let’s get to […]

Snow Moon? Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This febrero has taken a turn for friiio this week, so be sure to keep warm inside and out.  Possibly it’s because of February’s full “Snow Moon” (Feb. 8th – first super moon of 2020), or just a reminder we are indeed still in winter.  Stay warm at your favorite watering hole this weekend, or […]
